A few more Burano shrines

Each of these was tucked away inside a sotoportego, above the exit. They're all small and rather homespun, not elegant but very charming.


This one's unusual...a paper collage of sacred images with "Salvami Regina" at the center. Save me/us, Queen of Heaven....


And this one has a bottle of holy water very much like the one I got at the Festa della Madonna della Salute.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, that bottle does look like the ones they give out at the Festa della Madonna della Salute. I wonder if the caretaker attended and brought it back to the shrine. How cool is that. The second one has a beautiful lace cloth and the floral arrangement in the first one is really pretty. They are all so beautiful.

Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful photos.

Kathy, I wondered the same thing about the holy water!


Very elaborate! I know we've talked about this before, but it would be so interesting to someday find out who tends these shrines!
